Welcome to my Spark page.

This past year has been a year of learning, changing, and revelations. I have seen so many things in me that need to change and in my life. I have seen that I need to stop letting my circumstances control me and take my life back, to live a moment by moment pro active life not reactive. I have already made great strides this past year and by the end of 2017 I plan on completing this goal. Sparkpeople, and my weight loss and journey to the best health I can have is part of it all. I know I can do it, and I know you can too!!!

"The Happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.

You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking."

Marcus Aurelius

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.

Believe you can and you’re halfway there!!

    Just popping by your page to let you know I'm thinking about you. The in-between challenge, in my mind, is akin to having the little bit of awareness deep within ourselves not to give up. Yes, the holiday season can bring many challenges and many of us tend to overindulge with food and drink. I made shortbread cookies tonight and I ate one....I am not mad at myself for eating that cookie but I'm mighty proud of myself that I stopped at one. Don't deprive yourself but set limits and try to move a little each day!
